In this regard, Rishika Lulla Singh, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Eros Digital, expressed her pleasure on partnering with LG, which is one of the largest and most formidable brands in consumer electronics. She spoke about the increasing need of smart TVs in households and believes Eros' partnership with LG would provide LG Smart TV users access to premium Eros Now content. This would create a seamless viewing experience for them, and consequently, this would advance Eros International's vision of being platform agnostic.

Move Expected to Boost LG Smart TV Sales in India

Younchul Park, the Director at Home Entertainment, LG Electronics India, also expressed his excitement on collaborating with Eros Now. He shared that LG constantly looks out for partnerships that have the potential to create value for its consumers. He believes that the partnership with Eros Now is another step towards this endeavor.

He revealed that the smart TV industry in India is currently in its growth path. The availability of good content would definitely enhance the overall consumer experience of smart televisions. Park, therefore, considers that this deal would further drive smart TV sales in India. It would also help LG create a favorable eco-system for catering to the ever-increasing demand for smart TVs and good content.

Eros Now Enters South African Market with Telecel Global Partnership

Just a week before the deal with LG, Eros International announced on November 03, 2017, that Eros Now would enter the South African market through a strategic partnership with leading telecommunications provider, Telecel Global Pty.

As part of this deal, Eros Now content would be available to Telecel's customers as a bundled service with their prepaid and postpaid data plans, IPTV, and set-top box with multi-purpose quad service applications. South Africa, which is popularly referred to as ‘The Mobile Continent', has recently noted a high rate of mobile phone adaptation. In fact, according to Nielson, mobile video is exceptionally prominent in African regions. This association with Telecel would help Eros International leverage on the existing annual paid subscribers in the South African market.
